President Richard Nixon 'home movies' to be screened

One week before the 2012 US presidential election and 40 years after Richard Nixon beat Senator George McGovern to the White House, a new behind the scenes documentary has gathered home movies of Nixon shot by his political aides.

Many of the films were confiscated by the FBI during the Watergate scandal and lay untouched in the National Archives for 40 years.

Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
